Beautiful controller. Now I have the NSIII and Denon MCX8000. I am an amateur so I have much to learn. I "stand alone"......with Denon.

I would say it is one of the best DJ mixers that I have ever purchased. The USB feature alone can save a gig. Worth the price and is in a league of its on.

Sorry, DJ controller!!!

Looks like Denon answered the call of those of us who have been waiting for a Numark NS6 update! It looks and feels like what an NS6 II would have been if Numark actually made one, instead of ignoring us and trying to fill the gap with the NV...

Worth the buy. I have used it about 4 times and have never had a drop or crash! I have always used Denon and trust their product over some of the other brands. I found mines for $850 and it was a steal of a deal. If you see a great deal on it, DON"T PASS IT UP!!!

Iv been using this controller for 6 months now. I spin 6 nights a week in Florida night clubs. It performed horribly with Serato. Thank god for Dj's out there who mapped the MCX 8000 to Traktor. The sound quality was night and day difference. The stand alone player saved my ass twice already! Great Job Denon!

I only used as a back up. The usb is way louder I do agree. I think the Pioneer DDJ SZ2 might be the comp for 2017.
